returned to NGC 1232 (Halifax)

I wanted to improve on the data quality for NGC 1232, first captured on 21 Dec '17. This result is better, despite the bright Moon, as there is no satellite trail. Stretched it in a different way which increased the contrast.

Luminance only, 60 seconds subexposures, 10 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, Paint.NET. North is up; east is left.
